The golf course is in nice conditions but could be better but for the prices I paid I can't complain. New Pro shop and very friendly staff. Golf cars in very nice conditions plus UBS connections.

When I arrived I was greeted their friendly attendant with some thing to know about the coarse and what to watch out for, and that is helpful for any first time player. The check was fast and friendly, and the clubhouse is clean and looks like nice place to relax after a round.

Now the coarse could use some TLC , the golf coarse is in a water ski community so there is a lot of lake around the coarse and we have been getting rain almost every day so weed control has to be hard to keep up with.

This coarse is a good place to test your skills , the par 3 holes are probably the most challenging hole I have played.

Yes I will play this coarse again

Been playing here most Saturday morning for the last four years. The course condition has improved greatly in the last 18 months. The new club house is very nice, the staff is really nice. I would recommend this course to any one looking for a course that is a great value and real challenge. Now a few thing that need to improve. The greens on some holes need to improve. the fairways and tee boxes are in good shape. Looking forward to my next round!

Played here many times over the past few years. Not a great course, but a good place to play with liberal rules, like giving yourself a club length in the fairway to find a better patch of grass to hit from. Greens were in pretty rough shape, it always have been. They were puttable, but just bumpy. The new golf trailer is very nice and the gold carts are excellent. I played by myself and was able to play in 3 hours, but only because there was a group of 8 and a group of 6 playing together. Instead of letting me play through, they offered to let me skip holes and jump in front of them - Seriously? I guess they just don’t know proper golf etiquette. Course could stand to have a ranger, but I managed. The staff was super friendly. All in all, about like the course has always been. Don’t go there expecting anything substantial. Just go there to have fun. Definitely worth the low price.

The fairways have some nice grassy places But clumpy weeds rule. Greens need lots of help but improving. Sand traps are very nice. The golf carts are great. Overall, a nice place to practice if you play liberal winter rules. Very good value and I would practice there again.

The course was OK but you’re airaeting greens that morning no warning they shut down the back nine so people were coming off nine in going to one in mixing in with the other teetimes no starter not a good way to run a golf course other than that one problem things are OK went off half hour late ——had a foursome and twosome join up for a sixome for the last four holes of their day unfortunately our 6 thru 9.

The course reminds me of New England course as there are rolling hills and fairways. No two holes are the same and on two of the par 3's there is a warning to to allow the ski-towing boats to pass before teeing off.Quite unusual and very interesting.

The course itself was in very good shape;, however the greens were in poor condition with many bare spots. My rating would have been better were it not for the poor condition of the greens.

Some improvements have been made and the condition of the Tee boxes and Fairways have improved in the last year, but the Greens are still not good and really need to be replaced or the owners need to find an expert who can fix them. To charge $30 for the regular morning rate, most golfers are not going to expect 5 Star conditions but they will expect average to decent greens and unfortunately this is not the case here. My golf buddy said he will not play here again, nor will I for the near future. Hopefully in a year or two I will hear that the greens and the rest of the course are greatly improved as the lay out of the course is nice. Best of luck!

Some reviews say the course is improving......some greens were nice, others were dry with brown spots. Between the 14th & 16th holes and behind them they are plowing.....found out that Swiss sold some property and now there will be houses ON the course and beind it - that would seem kind of distracting/annoying. Oh well, progress. I do like that they finally put up the trailer house so that players can eventually check in by the 1st hole instead of walking down to the "club house" .
